Bonnie the Biologist:
If it lives or breathes, Bonnie will tell you all about it during her special programs at Burroughs Audubon’s Nature Center and Bird Sanctuary.
Join an experienced birder on a guided bird hike and they open up the world of birding to you by showing you birds you’ve never seen or to check birds off your yearly bird list.
A monthly meeting includes a refreshments, announcements, special program, and the opportunity to talk to other birders in the general Kansas City area.
